Undergraduate Students

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance,  we have had to make some changes to the programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. The changes are:

·         All lectures and classes are held online for Lent 2021. We are currently monitoring the situation to see what will be possible in Easter 2021.

·         Examination updates for Prelim to Part IAPart IA, Part 1B and Part II are now available. Further guidelines have also been published.

 


 

 

Current and incoming classics students will find information about their degree programmes on this page.

The undergraduate degree is known as the Classical Tripos.  The Tripos is divided into four parts, Prelim to Part IA, Part IA, Part IB and Part II.  The links below will take you to information about each part of the Tripos:

You can find more details about the structure of the course in the the University Statutes and Ordinances.

The exam marking criteria are available here, and a range of further information, such as lecture handouts, past exam papers, travel forms, Student-Staff Joint Committee minutes can be found on the Faculty’s Moodle site (an online resource system).

The Lecture Timetable outlines all the classics lectures for the coming year, in a downloadable PDF.

The Undergraduate Handbook contains useful information about studying classics in Cambridge.

You can also find information about transferable skills, plagiarism, and important dates in the Faculty’s year (Undergraduate Calendar, Exam Dates and Term Dates).

The University International Student Team provides specialist support to students who come to study at Cambridge from outside the UK.
